I have better things to do than start my day off writing about my thoughts on the Coronavirus. But after receiving a text from my mom this morning laden with panic about what astrologers predict, I just can’t help myself. In fact, when my friends start talking about how terrible the world is today between Trump and this friendly new pathogen, I check out altogether. I refuse to get sucked into the negative dialogue. …

The only one who can control your mind is you.

I’ve been a daily meditator for the past few years or so. Mostly because I like to start my day on a positive note, entirely focused on my end game. I’ve read many books on the subject over the years including those by Eckhart Tolle, Norman Vincent Peale and Esther & Jerry Hicks. I listen to new meditations on YouTube just about every day, and I spend about 20 to 30 minutes early each morning with my eyes closed and undisturbed by anyone, including my husband and kids. In fact, if they try to poke me while I’m meditating (which they often do, because they need something urgent, like help opening a pickle jar), I flat out ignore them. …

Been hearing all about the blockchain lately, but have no idea what it is? You’re not alone. I can’t tell you how many people ask me to explain it. I usually dumb it down with something like, “Imagine wearing a sweater and then accidentally cutting one of the stiches. The sweater would fall apart.” The answer isn’t really that complicated.

I remember watching an episode of American Horror Story where a 20-something influencer couple checks into a hotel like they’re Will and Kate, expecting the red carpet, free champers and a grass-fed steak waiting on a silver platter by their bedside. Needless to say, they were killed off in the first few minutes of being in their free room.

Influencers today are like skyscrapers and banner ads on an MSN page. There are just so many of them that you don’t even notice them anymore. Their photos of cheddar-cheese-oozing burgers and rainbow-unicorn desserts are now a dime a dozen. The influencer market, complete with influencer agencies, influencer data platforms and influencers to influencers, has become so saturated that photos of even the most decadent brownies do nothing for us. We’ve even reached a point where seeing yet another picture of Jen Selter’s ass is like watching another Vacation sequel. …
